This wound is most likely to develop paronychia.
To prevent paronychia:

Care for the nails and the skin around the nails properly.Avoid damaging the nails or fingertips. Because the nails grow slowly, an injury can last for months.Do not bite or pick the nails.Protect the nails from exposure to detergents and chemicals by using rubber or plastic gloves. Gloves with cotton liners are best.

Consult surgeon...
